Sad News!

A very sad day!

Two of our members have lost their horses this morning.

Marion Williams lost her lovely horse Terackie Koudos, known to his friends as Tigger this morning to colic. Tigg would of been 18 in June, Marion and Tigg shared many happy times together covering a wide range of disciplines, he will be sadly missed.


Our thoughts also go to Sue Keatley who had to say goodbye to Barney aged 24. Sue had owned Barney since he was a two year old, “Barn” was a great character at the yard and loved by everyone who met him.

Horse Chat club

After the brilliant wine tasting at Pats, we agreed it was lovely just to have a nice chat and catch up. So we are proposing, thanks to Pat and her family, that once a term we just meet there, bring your own drinks. No cost just fun…. Come for an hour or two… whatever suits you. Watch out for dates.
